You may have seen my name floating around this blog for a couple of weeks now and since I let Nicki convince me to add me as a more permanent contributor, I thought it would be nice if I properly introduced myself. I’m Danielle, a youth services librarian at a public library in NJ (Nicki and I work together). I read across the board, so you’ll find children’s, YA, adult and non-fiction reviews from me. I’m definitely more of a reader than writer, but love talking about the books that move me, so I thought this could be a good way to dip my non-techie toes into the blogosphere without a full-out committment.
Like most people who enter librarianship, I have been reading forever. Books have always been my escape, my outlet, my way to learn about the parts of the world I will likely never experience first-hand. There is nothing I enjoy more than being curled up with a good book.
As a newbie to the profession, I’ve found one of the most ironic things about my job is that easy access to a treasure trove of books has made my ‘to-be-read’ book pile grow at rapid speeds while my time to actually read that mountain of books is decreasing. Who would have thought??? 😉
So, thanks to Nicki for letting me blog along with her until she can talk me into starting my own blog (or until I get tired of the whole thing-whichever comes first). Happy reading!
